Review: Nice trail! It's a nice flowy park! Very flat no major obstacles. You may do some climbing on parts of purple trail. Red trail is a steep downhill if you start with it. Orange trail is very flat which follows the creek and goes around for a loop. Blue and yellow at this time seem to be for walkers only. Orange, white purple and red are for shared bike and walkers. Map is really easy to follow! Great trail!

Review: Very smooth and flowy. This is a great place to take a beginner. If you are seeking a challenge, look elsewhere; if you are seeking a relaxing ride through forests, bright green meadows and along creek banks, this is it. It's very well maintained, and looks promising.

Review: Let me start off this review saying that this trail is definitely for beginners. There is one switchback near the beginning of Muscogee that you have to watch out for, but otherwise it is a relaxed ride. With that out the way, this trail is well built, well marked, and has pretty good flow. It features mostly singletrack that gets narrow in the grassy sections and is comprised of easy, sweeping turns. Being only 4.1 miles, it will take most people less than an hour to ride every single trail. There is a nice stream and a few meadows to look at on your way through the woods, but watch out for all the spider webs. If you live within 30 minutes of here or are a beginner I would go; otherwise it isn't worth the drive.
